How Clean is Today’s Oil Heat?

Posted: February 2, 2018

The quality of your heating oil has a big impact on how efficiently your system runs and how long your equipment lasts. That’s why we deliver the cleanest fuel possible. It’s better for the environment and better for your heating system.

The combination of our ultra-low-sulfur heating oil (ULSHO) and our special additive called Avalux has yielded a huge reduction in fuel-related service calls, and that means less downtime for our customers. We have used Avalux for 10 years; it helps fuel burn more cleanly, which means a cleaner heating system inside and less particulate matter going into the atmosphere.

Facts about (ULSHO)

  • (ULSHO) has 99% less sulfur in it than standard heating oil.
  • The switch to ULSHO has resulted in a reduction in emissions of over 70%, compared with the emissions produced by traditional heating fuel.
  • You benefit from better heating efficiency and easier maintenance, since ultra-low-sulfur heating oil creates fewer deposits on heat exchangers.
  • ULSHO allows for the introduction of super-efficient heating systems, which are already being used with great results outside of the United States.

This is only the beginning. The quality of heating oil will get even better in the years ahead. And that’s good news for the environment—and for all of us.
